Meet Mrs. Madeline Arison! She is the wonderful and beautiful wife of NBA team owner Micky Arison, the owner of the Miami Heat.
Mr. Arison’s whose net worth is estimated at $7.8 billion has been the owner of the Heat since 1995
Always ready for the camera with her best asset, her smile! Mrs. Arison’s humble, relaxed and kindness makes it hard to believe she is married to Micky Arison, the former CEO of the Carnival corporation who is considered one of the industry’s most powerful executives! Madeleine and hubby are the perfect examples of what we would call a power couple.
The couple’s relax swag often mistakes them for just another passengers enjoying a Caribbean cruise. Mrs. Madeleine Arison, 66, is a current Trustee at Ted Arison Family Foundation U.S.A. Inc.
She and her husband, are passionate supporters of numerous arts and community organizations; including the New World Symphony, Miami City Ballet, Jackson Memorial Foundation, Miami Children’s Museum, Miami Art Museum, American Red Cross, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, United Way, and Community Partnership for the Homeless.
At the University of Miami, the couple has provided $5.5 million in funding toward research at The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, The Buoniconti Fund, and the Sayfie Pavilion.
The Arisons also helped the University deliver lifesaving care in Haiti following the devastating earthquake there in 2010.
Madeleine mostly dedicates her time to philanthropy and voluntarism; they always do everything together and join forces to raise an incredible amount of cash like the Destination Fashion 2012 Presented By Micky And Madeleine Arison; raising a staggering $31 Million for The Buoniconti Fund To Cure Paralysis.
Early 2013 had a rough start for the wealthy duo when 4,000 passengers were stranded for days in the Gulf of Mexico with little food and few working bathrooms after an engine fire crippled its ship, Triumph.
Mr. Arison stepped down as CEO of the Carnival Corporation in June 2013.
